Top 3 Wheel Problems
  1. Physical Damage – Cracks, splits and chips eventually take their toll leaving your wheels looking tired and unloved.
  2. Wheel Alignment – Symptoms include scrubbing tyre sides, steering doesn’t center after turning or screeching when cornering or pulling to one side.
  3. Wheel Balancing – Vibrations through your steering wheel at various speeds are usually unbalanced wheels.

Wheel Alignment (Tracking)

Laser wheel alignment consists of your car having a device attached to each wheel which shines a laser beam of light which is focused using mirrors to measure your car wheels alignment. Manufacturers specify figures for front and back wheels and can either be toe in or toe out. If your wheels are out of line they are adjusted until they are at the recommended manufacturers settings. Your car steering and handling will feel better and will return to its central position after a turn without you having to feed it back.

Do I Need Laser Wheel Alignment?

Does your car feel like it pulls to one side? Are your tyres wearing unevenly? Does your steering wheel not feed back to the center point on its own after a turn? If the answer to any of those questions is yes then you probably need your cars wheels aligning. Our illustration shows an exaggerated example of toe in and would seriously affect handling & tyre wear.

What Is Wheel Balancing?

Wheel balancing is the process of achieving true wheel & tyre balance by the addition or subtraction of weights fixed around the wheel. The wheel is clamped to computerised balancing equipment which spins the wheel at various speeds and determines the positions and weights required to make the wheel balanced.

Why Do I Need Wheel Balancing?

Unbalanced Wheel

If you have noticed vibrations through your seat or through the steering wheel you may need one or more of your cars wheels balancing. When your cars wheels rotate they will vibrate if the wheel is not properly balanced. This vibration is then amplified through the cars body and steering wheel. It can be at all speeds or just around a specific speed. This vibration can wear bearings and linkages prematurely so it is vital to ensure all your wheels are balanced.
